The post you have all been waiting for……
We are proud to announce the inaugural #TAL UnAwards. Shortly after the 2010 car of the year is announced by the motor industry, the best hyperlocal bloggers from the UK will be invited to #TAL UnAwards09, a no expense spent awards ceremony for the best hyperlocal blogs of 2009 in a venue to be confirmed in the Midlands.
This red possibly carpeted event, will be the highlight of the hyperlocal year with the much sought after awards being presented, not only will you get a badge to put on your award winning blog, but you may, if we get our act together, get a real proper award to take home or leave in the taxi back to the station.
The ill conceived plan for the unAwards goes something like this:
- Suggestions for award categories
- Nominations for each category
- After some arbitrary time scale voting will close
- The Talk About Local Team will collate the votes*
- We present the awards**
So all that remains is for me to declare the suggestions for categories open, please leave your suggestions in the comments below.
*If it rains on any day when voting is open or we feel that we know better than the hyperlocal community we may apply the duckworth lewis scoring method to get the correct results.
**It may be possible to influence the results even at this late stage with bribes of alcohol for the TAL team***
***It won’t but we will take the bribes anyway.
Away from Talk About Local I take photos, fly my quadcopter and walk my two Beagles.
If I'm not doing any of the above then you'll find me volunteering at my local RNLI station as a press officer.
